His stats are brutal too... There's no other way to look at.
Let's talk about some reality. FACTS, NUMBERS. Not basic and raw shooting numbers.
How is possible that D'Angelo Russell in his 6th year in the league doesnt have one single season without a positive net rating Per 100 Poss. The closest he was to have a positive impact on the floor was in Brooklyn, the "all-star season" and guess what? He still was negative. And before some of you talk about how bad his teamates were/are and to give some prespective Ricky Rubio in his first 6 seasons in the NBA with this franchise and with horrible rosters (oh boy, we know that) he managed to be a net positive in three of those seasons, and the other three the difference was minimum. KAT was a net positive in all-seasons since he arrived in the league.
